Whether you’re going out with a significant other on New Year’s Eve or you’re hoping to connect lips with a gorgeous hottie who you just met on the dance floor, your lips need to be in full form and ready for that moment the clock strikes midnight. Here are a few of my personal tips and looks to get lips irresistibly kissable:
Start with a smooth base by exfoliating your lips. Mix a little baking soda with a couple drops of water in the palm of your hand and then gently rub the mixture in a circular motion on your lips. You could gently brush your lips with your toothbrush as well.
Apply lip balm. I usually like to rub the balm into my lips with my finger and let it set in for a minute or two.
Use a lip pencil to line the lips. If you want to make your lips look fuller, use a slightly darker lip pencil to outline the lips. If you use a pencil that’s too dark, you may end up looking like a page out of a high school yearbook in the 80’s.
Apply lip gloss in the center of the lips. To add even more fullness, add a touch of lip gloss to highlight the lips.
For a more bold look, red lipstick always does the trick. Whenever I wear red lipstick I always apply a little concealer to my lips first so that the lipstick stays put. I don’t have a red lip pencil, so I just used a lip brush to line my lips before I applied the lipstick. For this look I used Palladio Beauty Herbal Matte Lip Color in Red Carpet.
